I can't say anything about Sipgate other than that I've used them since I
first got interested in VoIP 5+ years ago and they keep on going...

I think the answer to your first question is: "A couple of blokes in Germany".

However their upstream in the UK is (or was, I presume still is) Magrathea
and I know from talking to them that should one of their resellers go
"phut" for whatever reason then a good effort would be made to keep their
customers happy - by seeing if another one of their resellers would take
over their customers - I also resell VoIP from Magrathea... Part of my own
"get run over by a bus" plan involves another Magrathea reseller to take
my stuff over...

So (without really knowing anything about Sipgate), I'd be reasonably
confident that things aren't going to change - at least not in the UK -
for a while.
